Mangia Mangia Restaurant Review

: This cozy, welcoming Italian restaurant offers Albany and Berkeley locals a just-right neighborhood dining experience, fit for casual or special occasions. Service is exceptionally friendly with a family-run feel, and the small dining room’s coppery exhibition kitchen, crisp white tablecloths and terra cotta sponged walls combine to create a romantic, convivial atmosphere. Food is reasonably-priced northern Italian, consistently good thanks to well-developed sauces that warm the palate, and portions are generous. We recommend heading straight for the pasta, particularly the spaghetti bolognese or ricotta-and mozzarella-stuffed manicotti crêpe in tomato cream sauce. Fresh fish and seafood choices, such as the grilled prawn main with orzo and vegetables, and linguine di mare, are also good bets. One critique could lie in the occasional incongruous, off-season offering, such as caprese salad in winter. Stick to clearly seasonal choices for the best experience, and don’t miss the chocolate soufflé for dessert. Wines include good Italian, French and local varietals by the bottle or glass.
